Nooks & Crannies is a festival where artists create temporary site-specific installations in downtown Okotoks. This art festival sees artists repurpose and animate forgotten places with recycled materials, bringing public art to forgotten corners of downtown Okotoks. Individual artists and teams use recycled products to create installations that raise environmental awareness, animate spaces, and entertain audiences.
Presented alongside Buskersfest, the inaugural Nooks & Crannies Festival opened June 22nd, 2019 with the art installations available for viewing until the end of August.
Participating artists were busy installing artworks from June 20 to 22.
